Fremantle History Society

Fremantle Studies | Studies Days | Newsletter | Davidson Scholarship

The Fremantle History Society was established 12 October 1994, with Dianne Davidson (d. 13 October 2021) as president (1994-7), and has a website, a Facebook page, and these aims. The current president is Judith Robison. Here are committees present and past. The 2023 AGM was held 25 July at St John's Church. Election results are on the committees page.

First & latest. Prof. Bob Reece, who was in the chair for the 1994 first meeting of the Society, with Judith Robison, current president.

Fremantle Studies is the FHS journal, published every two years or so. I've written a simple subject index.

Fremantle Studies Day is held annually by the History Society. The event produces papers that are published in the journal.

Newsletters are published four times a year, and are almost all available here. There is an incomplete index (1994-2004).

Then President Allen Graham with treasurer Pam Harris and committee-member Alan Kelsall at a History Council of WA event 25 October 2022 at which the Society received an award for its "significant contribution to the understanding or impact of, or advocacy for, local history in Western Australia". Looks like Professor Lenore Layman on the left.
